Depression Era Sandwich Spread

October 22, 2009

bunsI know these whole wheat buns look like somebody sat on them but that’s beside the point.  The recipe for the filling is from a cookbook gotten from the Jewel Tea man way back when.

The recipe says to mix cream cheese, chopped bell pepper, mayonnaise, and mustard together, perhaps with a bit of chopped parsley.  Spread on sandwiches or buns.

I doubt that those who were seriously challenged in a financial sense could have afforded some of the ingredients.

Cookbook from the Great Depression

May 6, 2009


This cookbook was given as a premium, along with Depression glass, by the Jewel Tea Company. What amazes me is that during such hard times there were such high standards for housekeeping, setting a table, and so on. The recipes in the book are good!
